Former Georgia linebacker Davin Bellamy gained nationwide fame when he told Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield to “humble yourself” after the Bulldogs’ memorable Rose Bowl victory against the Sooners in January.
Turns out, some Twitter users remembered Bellamy’s “humble yourself” message and tried to criticize him with those words after the 2018 NFL Draft.
On Thursday, WXIA-TV’s Wes Blankenship used Twitter to share an amazing clip of Bellamy reading mean tweets that were sent to the former Bulldogs player after the NFL draft. Bellamy wasn’t selected, but he signed as an undrafted free agent with the Houston Texans.
Watch Bellamy read the mean tweets below:

Kudos to Bellamy for being a good sport and having fun with Twitter users who tried to turn the player’s “humble yourself” comment against him. Twitter can be a rough place, but Bellamy handled the situation well.
Of course, the Cleveland Browns selected Mayfield at No. 1 in the 2018 NFL Draft. Still, Bellamy will always have Rose Bowl bragging rights. The former Sooners star will never be able to say that.
That’s reason enough to stay humble.
